The Vomero is the latest of the Nike shoes to join the Shield line, shoes equipped for winter weather and lack of sunlight. The upper takes on the Shield attributes, with not only 360 degree reflectivity on more than half of the upper, but also with a moisture shedding coating on the whole shebang (DWR, a proven industry standard).
The midsole is Nike's very effective Cushlon foam, with flex grooves managing the foot's motion without hindering the gait, while Zoom Air units in the heel and forefoot add their benefit to the ride. The outersole is BRS 1000, the durable rubber compound that refers to the brand's origins. The bottom line is that the Vomero 8 Shield maintains its high mileage functionality with the added benefit of great visibility and protection from the elements.
